Capture sights other cameras miss
The speed to catch all of life's moments
The Nikon 1 J5 achieves a level of speed and accuracy not even a DSLR can match. Its cutting-edge autofocus system uses 105 phase-detect AF points to instantly identify and focus on your subject. Hold down the shutter button and turn each second of action into 20 tack-sharp, full-resolution photos. Fix your focus, and the Nikon 1 J5 can capture at a mind boggling 60 frames per second continuously. A new Sports Mode optimizes the Nikon 1 J5 for fast-action, so you can switch from shooting pre-game portraits to on-field close-ups without missing a play.
Marvel at the image quality
Beautiful photos and videos in any light
Capture in 20.8-megapixels of dazzling resolution. The Nikon 1 J5's all new back-side illuminated (BSI) CX-format CMOS image sensor gathers more light than a traditional CMOS sensor, enabling faster shutter speeds and enhanced low-light capabilities. Nikon's new EXPEED 5A image processing assures rich colours, smooth tones and razor-sharp details in every photo and Full HD video. And when the light is very low, shoot all the way up to ISO 12,800 with no fear of noise—High ISO Noise Reduction stacks four separate images for clean, sharp low-light results.
Dream it, capture it
Outstanding handling and creative control
The Nikon 1 J5 handles like a dream. Its 180° tilting touch screen lets you shoot from any angle that intrigues you and puts key controls—even the ability to fire the shutter—at your fingertips. You can quickly select an exposure mode, including full Manual control, from the dedicated PSAM dial, while the Command Dial makes it easy to navigate the Nikon 1 J5's intuitive menu system. You can even customize the Function button to recall your favorite menu or setting. Bring your creative vision to life.
